Hailed as “a triumph”, ”superb mini-opera”, “a masterpiece” by Opera TodayAmerican Record Guide and others, every live performance of the piece becomes a cathartic experience and leaves the audience transformedand uplifted. The original cast of the production – the superb Miami String Quartet and the rising star of opera and recital stage baritone Jesse Blumberg – is beautifully captured in the fabulous setting of Blue Griffin’s The Ballroom studio with the loving guidance of the composer himself.
